Fall is in the air?

Hi everyone! Haven't written in a while - been pretty busy what with vacations, grandkids and such....not to mention the garden!  Speaking of garden, I have baby collards, broccoli, spaghetti squash, spinich, cabbage and kale.... ! There is no time to rest yet; we still have food to grow!  Seed us coming in hot and heavy, the hyacinth bean and lavender moonflower are especially abundent this year. Also morning glories of unbelievably rich colors this year, and white cyprus vine and marigold.  My marigolds look like BUSHES, not plants, this year....turns out i planted them over the septic tank! ha! So that old rumour is true......! you can see some of my pics from my garden and produce on my facebook page, if you are interested. Look up and "like" debbie's garden in Dallas, Georgia.!/pages/debbies-garden/70108898736  Everyone have a great day!  debbie


Good Friday

Well i am taking a break, it's been a good "planting day" - Happy Good Friday, all! I managed to plant some baby lima beans (2 varieties-i love baby limas!) Planted some okra that i soaked the seed all night so hopefully it will be up in a few days. Planted some cucumbers, Marketmore is the variety. Also so marigolds (white) and zinnias (dwarf), and some chamomile. Oh...and some soy beans too, just for fun, and nasturtiums among them all!  :-)  Cleared some more ground, raked some's not easy work some days...thinking about hiring my son some Saturday soon to help do some more clearing. We'll see....! Also set out some Better Boy tomatoes and planted basil in with it....last year i did that, as suggested, and it did seem to make the tomatoes produce more! Amazing! I am also getting ready for my plant sale next weekend, at Point of Need Ministries on Canton Road (APRIL 18, SEE MY LH PAGE AND MY FACEBOOK)....hopefully I will have everything ready! I have a load of perennials: Gardenia, butterfly bush, rosemary, irises, coreopsis, to name a few....some annuals, too! Marigolds, sundrops....and herbs (basil, chamomile, thyme, oregano, tarragon, parsley, cilantro, dill, sage, evening primrose, purple cone flower /echinacea).....I could go on, but I won' yea I've been a bit busy lately! Keeps me out of trouble...haha....everyone have a grand day!  debbie
